While much of the rest of the BMW lineup is downsizing to turbocharged four-cylinders, the M6 is downsizing to a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8. Yes, the V10 is gone, but the new model's power figures are right where they need to be, and, perhaps more importantly, so is the look.
We've already seen the M6 in the official imagery, and the good news is that it looks just as good in person. Despite some questionable lighting choices, the M6 on the BMW stand in Geneva comes off every bit as muscular, powerful, and modern as it ought to. It just comes off a bit more orange than you'd expect--regardless of what we did with our lenses, filters, or post-processing.
